<font color="blue">Your total clipart may not excede 400 pixels in any direction, an example of which is posted below.
ALL of your clipart, tables, smilies etc. must fit inside this square. If you traced this on to a sheet of paper, you should be able to cover it all.
Clipart may not exceed a total size of 35,000 bytes (35k)</font>

<font color="red">You may have up to 8 lines of text in your signature</font>

<font color="blue">There is a limit of 2 countdown timers</font>

<font color="red">Links that lead to other sites must follow the rules stated in The DIS posting guidelines (http://www.wdwinfo.com/guidelines.htm) </font>

<font color="blue">The DIS reserves the right to remove any clipart, even if it meets these standards, that causes technical problems with the boards as well as any HTML, VB or JS code in the post that causes issues.</font>

<font color="red">We are currently allowing the following exceptions:
Memorial clipart outside these guidelines for 9/11 and our friend Sylvia
1 DIS "WISH" clipart</font>

Examples for clarification:

<sup>Your total clipart may not excede 400 pixels in any direction.
ALL of your clipart, tables, smilies etc. must fit inside this square. Clipart may not exceed a total size of 35,000 bytes (35k)</sup>

For PC users with Internet Explorer: If you "right click" on the above image and then choose "Properties", you will see a window that looks something like this:
http://66.199.150.9/images/eg6.gif
These figures tell you both the byte size of the image as well as the dimensions in pixels. The sum of all of your clipart within the 400 x 400 allotted square can not be higher than 35,000 bytes.

The total height or width cannot exceed 400 pixels in either direction

Example:

If you have 1 image that is 300 pixels x 200 pixels and another that is 200 x 250, it is not possible to get them to fit together within the 400 x 400 allotted square.

You will either need to select a different image, or resize one (or both) of them to fit into the square properly.

As long as you remain within BOTH aspects of the guideline, you may place multiple images into the square. Just don't forget to add up all of them when calculating your total byte size.

Example:

Directly below are 4 images that have been arranged to fit into the 400 x 400 square. The sum of their byte size is 26,389, which is well within the 35,000 guideline.
<img src="http://66.199.150.9/images/eg1.gif"><img src="http://66.199.150.9/images/eg2.gif">
<img src="http://66.199.150.9/images/eg3.gif"><img src="http://66.199.150.9/images/eg4.gif">

You will have one week to bring your clipart into compliance. If you have any questions or need help please visit our Tech Support Board (http://disboards.com/forumdisplay.php?forumid=43)

I only have one Countdown timer.

The other one is a Countup timer.

Does that mean I can still have another Countdown timer?



Just Kidding....:p :p :p

Congrats to whoever did the graphics for that post, Doc. That's a fine job.
